SYNOPSIS

In openglut.h Ft void Fn glutSolidSphere GLdouble radius GLint slices GLint stacks  

PARAMETERS

Bf Em
 radius Ef
        Sphere radius.

Bf Em
 slices Ef
        The number of divisions around the z axis. (latitudal)

Bf Em
 stacks Ef
        The number of divisions along the z axis. (longitudal)  

DESCRIPTION

The glutSolidSphere() function draws a shaded sphere centered at the origin. The surface is created from quadrangles (except for triangles as degenerate quads at the poles) in a longitude/latitude pattern. The equatorial great circle lies in the xy-plane and is centered on the origin.

 

CAVEATS

The number of polygons representing the spherical surface is proportional to (slices*stacks).
